Efforts Are Result Of Collaboration With Actress Ari Meyers And Songwriter Jenni Alpert
Pasadena, CA - "I want to give you hope. I want to give you love. You are not alone." These words are part of the chorus of an original song, "You Are Not Alone," co-written and performed by 10 children from Hillsides residential program with local singer-songwriter Jenni Alpert.
The song can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/jennialpertmusic/you-are-not-alone.
The children, ranging in age from 10 to 17, worked for months on the song and an accompanying music video as part of a "My Purpose Party", a program that incorporates community service with children's self-expression created by actress and philanthropist Ari Meyers.
The children selected the theme because they themselves have struggled with loneliness and were motivated to comfort others in the same position.
